Title Chiribiribin
Lyrictext

When the moon hangs low in Napoli, there's a handsome gondolier,
Every night he sings so happily, so his lady love can hear.
In a manner oh gravissimo, he repeats his serenade,
And his heart beats so fortissimo, when she raises her Venetian shade.
Ciribiribin, chiribiribin, ciribiribin.

Ciribiribin, he waits for her each night beneath her balcony.
Ciribiribin, he begs to hold her tight, but no, she won't agree.
Ciribiribin, she throws a rose and blows a kiss from up above,
Ciribiribin, ciribiribin, ciribiribin, they're so in love.
(musical interlude)
Ciribiribin, ciribiribin, ciribiribin, they're so in love.

LYRICS BY HOWARD JOHNSON (1932)

As recorded by: HELMUT LOTTI

Every night your kisses tell me
Just how sweet the days has been
For your kisses taste like honey
Let me feel those lips again
Though the moon is shining brightly
Even brighter is your smile
Let me dream a little longer
Be my honey for a wile
The buzzing starts
In both our hearts
Those beating hearts
Ciribiribin
Ciribiribin, with hearts so free we'll sing and dance this melody
Ciribiribin, oh what romance with loving hearts in harmony
Ciribiribin, what extacy to sing through life so merely
Ciribiribin, ciribiribin, ciribiribin means love to me
Ciribiribin, with hearts so free we'll sing and dance this melody
Ciribiribin, oh what romance with loving hearts in harmony
Ciribiribin, what extacy to sing through life so merrily
Ciribiribin, ciribiribin, ciribiribin means love to me
